We were introduced at the Purple Purl, and the girls there told me that Karen needed to knit a sweater. We've all been there - we find a sweater pattern we just plain NEED to knit.
Karen's situation was a little different, however. She's a very stylish style editor at Canadian Living, had been inspired by the amazing knitwear in the fall and winter lines of her favourite fashion designers, and she decided that she wanted to make herself a sweater. The thing was that she was a novice knitter, and she was working to a deadline.
Karen is a woman possessed of excellent focus and perseverance, and in less than 7 weeks from our first meeting, she had a most excellent alpaca sweater that looks great and fits her beautifully. She blogs about the process here.
I'm incredibly proud of her. Check out the pictures in the January issue of Canadian Living.
